Misza to jeden z bardziej utalentowanych zawodników ostatnich lat, posiadający bardzo eleganckie techniki uderzeń, oraz niebanalny zmysł taktyczny; niestety nie miało to większego przełożenia na wyniki.

Niesamowity mecz z Mathieu, którym zdobył Puchar Davisa, finałowa wygrana z młodym Corią w Stuttgatcie(5 setów na cegle!), wreszcie odniesione w wielkim stylu wygrane z Rafaelem Nadalem, to wszytko dowodzi potencjału Rosjanina.
Jużnemu brakuje dwóch elementów, niezbędnych do wygrywania naprawdę wielkich rzeczy. Zdrowia to raz, ale przede wszystkim mocnej psychiki. Na tegorocznym AO wydawało się, że wszytko jest możliwe; Federer, wielokrotny kat Miszy, był słaby, jak się potem okazało, chory; Rafa jeszcze nie był w pełnej formie i był całkowicie w zasięgu. Po raz pierwszy pojawiła się u mnie nieśmiała myśl, że może teraz..., ale tylko na chwile ;] Kto widział mecz z Tsongą, ten wie, że Misza nigdy niczego wielkiego nie ugra. Smecze pakowane w siatkę, stojąc metr od niej, śmierć w oczach, nogi z waty...
Teraz przyszły kontuzje, wynikające w dużej części z nieroztropnej polityki startowej i raczej ciężko liczyć na powrót do dużej formy. Szkoda, bo był to materiał na czołowego zawodnika ATP.

If Mikhaïl Youzhny were a beach…

Cytuj:
Russia’s Mikhail Youzhny, world No.14, will come up against Serbia’s Viktor Troicki in the third round. He’s been a frequent flyer since he was ten years old… and he likes it that way. Buckle your seatbelts for another exciting interview, this time with a travel theme.

What’s the most relaxing city?
I know it’s not the most relaxing city for everyone, but home in Moscow is where I feel the best.

The city where you’d like to own a house?
Moscow and no where else!

The best beaches ?
Are there any better beaches than in the Maldives?

The best restaurant?
Georges, in Miami. A fantastic Italian restaurant.

The most amazing place?
The Wailing Wall in Jerusalem. I went there with Russia for a Davis Cup match. The place was amazing, so symbolic.

Your travelling partners?
My coach, my wife Yulia and sometimes my mother.

The thing you like least about travelling?
Well, nothing really. Travelling is one the best things about this profession. And anyway, I’ve been travelling since I was small, so I’m used to it.

The best crowd?
The French crowd! I’m not just saying that because I’m at the French Open, I really think that. The French know their tennis. They encourage their players without insulting the opponents. It was something I experienced during the Davis Cup at Bercy. They’re tennis connoisseurs.

The best-organised tournament?
Dubai and Moscow.

The country with the best looking girls?
Russia. Obviously [laughs].

Your best friend on the circuit?
Sergiy Stakhovsky, but also most of the other Russian and Ukrainian players.

Jużny: W Moskwie tenis to luksus

Michaił Jużny postawił się hiszpańskiej koalicji i w czwartej rundzie ograł Tommy'ego Robredo 7:5, 6:2, 4:6, 6:4. 28-letni Rosjanin rozgrywa najlepsze US Open od 2006 lat, a w ćwierćfinale zmierzy się ze Stanislasem Wawrinką.

Najlepsza szesnastka nowojorskiego wielkiego szlema była zdominowana przez graczy z Półwyspu Iberyjskiego. Do tej fazy imprezy dotarło aż sześciu Hiszpanów.

Taki obrót spraw to żadne zaskoczenie dla Jużnego.

- Hiszpanie mają mnóstwo kortów. Mają mnóstwo miejsc, gdzie mogą dobrze trenować. Moim zdaniem to nie jest droga sprawa trenować tenis w Hiszpanii. W Rosji obecnie jest to zdecydowanie droższe. Nie każdy może sobie pozwolić na treningi w Moskwie - uważa Jużny.

Do ćwierćfinału przebiło się tylko dwóch reprezentantów z Półwyspu Iberyjskiego. Feliciano Lopez i David Ferrer odpadli w bratobójczych pojedynkach odpowiednio z Rafaelem Nadalem i Fernando Verdasco, Alberto Montanes poległ ze Szwedem Robinem Soderlingiem, a Jużny znalazł sposób na Robredo.

MAJOR MIKHAIL
DEUCE

Obrazek

Known for his trademark military salute and fighting spirit, Russian hero Mikhail Youzhny continues to carry on his late father’s legacy with the guidance of his long-time coach.

Mikhail Youzhny strokes the ball smoothly and accurately across the net placing it within easy reach of his longtime coach Boris Sobkin’s forehand. Youzhny, the St. Petersburg Open defending champion, is preparing for his semi-final match. They warm up in silence. After 18 years together, words are not necessary between this player and his coach. Now as they hit, Sobkin is wondering if Youzhny has enough energy left in the tank today to compete with the talented Dmitry Tursunov.

He would soon find out.

Locked at four games all in the first set, Tursunov’s powerful ground strokes have Youzhny on the run. All the racing from side to side has left Youzhny’s leg weary and bone tired, for he has not fully recovered from a viral infection that forced him to pull out of the previous week’s Kremlin Cup in Moscow. Yet, despite it all, Youzhny has just broken Tursunov’s serve to take a 5-4 lead in the first set. Now his body is fast breaking down. Youzhny asks Chair Umpire Carlos Bernardes for a toilet break. Request granted and he quickly rushes to the locker room where he is soon doubled over and puking his guts out.

Back on the court, Youzhny manages to hold serve and take the first set.

Though the crowd is clearly favouring Youzhny, Tursunov is not backing down and after taking the second set, he has now broken Youzhny’s serve in the third. Serving at 4-2, Youzhny put up a defence that would have made Peter the Great proud. It would last for 13 minutes and 50 seconds. And when it was over, Youzhny had broken back and the crowd was shaking their heads in amazement and clapping wildly.

Throughout the match, Youzhny has been working the Tursunov backhand with off-speed slices and heavy spin forehands. Normally Youzhny does not grunt much at all, but when he does it comes from the forehand side and it means he is on the attack. It is not so much a grunt as a command, as if he is ordering the ball on a special mission. The next few games becomes a tug of war between the two men as Youzhny fights off the powerful Tursunov attack while he tries to sink his teeth into the meat of the point. For the man the Russians affectionately call ‘Mischa’, Mikhail Youzhny’s primary weapons are easy to detect: head, heart and legs.

At six feet tall and 160 pounds, Mikhail Youzhny does not tower over his opponents. His clean-cut face is accented by thick dark eyebrows and a hard set jaw. When determined, his features make for an imposing scowl. But when Youzhny is happy, a pair of dimples and a slight gap in the front teeth show a million-dollar smile.

Obrazek Tursunov and Youzhny would continue to battle with each other until the final set tie-break. Immediately, Tursunov surges to a 6-3 lead. With his back pinned to the wall and facing three match points, Mikhail Youzhny is taking a beating like in a Rocky Balboa movie. Boris Sobkin is in the front row of the tribune, head in hands, rocking back and forth in his seat. There is just one problem for Tursunov. This is where Youzhny is most dangerous.

When it is over, and Mikhail Youzhny had somehow found a way to stave off defeat, Boris Sobkin was walking in the corridor with his hands clasped behind his back and shaking his head.

“This match is all you need to know to understand Mischa,” states Sobkin. “How you say? A picture is worth more than a thousand words.”

Ektarina Kempik, a waitress at the Gran Hotel Europa in Saint Petersburg, came to see Mikhail Youzhny play.

“I like him so much,” says Kempik. “I saw him in the restaurant of hotel many times and he is like star in Russia. For me he is what means Russian man: serious, hard worker and big fighter.”

Legendary Russian tennis player, Alex Metreveli, agrees.

“He is really a great fighter,” says Metreveli. “I cannot even remember how many matches he has won in tough situations. Russian people respect Mischa because he is a man who works hard. And his fighting spirit is just incredible. What he did in Paris for Davis Cup is just one of many such examples.”

Metreveli is referring to the 2002 Davis Cup Final in Paris. As typical of the French, it was a gala affair. French President Jacques Chirac was in attendance, and also Russian President Boris Yeltsin. With Grand Slam winners and ATP World Tour stars Marat Safin and Yevgeny Kafelnikov on the team, few if any thought that the young 20-year-old Mikhail Youzhny would see live action. Even Youzhny himself did not believe it.

“Captain says to me on first day that maybe I play final rubber as Kafelnikov was not 100 per cent fit,” recalls Youzhny. “But I did not believe him. How I can play important match with star like Yevgeny on team? And then Sunday morning I see Yevgeny arrive in running shoes and no racquets. Then I understand that I must play for Russia.”

Tatiana Naumko, the longtime coach of Russian tennis star Andrei Chesnokov has known Youzhny since he was eight years old. She was in Paris for that Davis Cup.

“Before match, I spoke to him,” says Naumko. “I say, ‘Mikhail, you must be like robot. Don’t think so much about situation. Just be robot: backhand, forehand, forehand and backhand, crosscourt and down the line. Be robot, Mikhail.’”

Not bad advice from one of Russia’s most successful tennis coaches, but just like a character from a Tolstoy novel, Youzhny was dealing with multiple burdens. Yes, there was the pressure of playing the final and deciding match of a Davis Cup Final. But there was something else; only one month earlier, Mikhail’s father had died unexpectedly.

“Everything that we have is because of our father,” says older brother and former player Andrei Youzhny, who was with the Russian team in Paris. “We are in tennis because of father. We are with Boris (Sobkin) because of father. Papa made so many sacrifices for our tennis. You know, he was Colonel in Soviet Army. And he stops his career to support our tennis each day. And Papa and Mischa are both born on same day, June 25th. Tell me, what is chance of that?”

The stage was set and the Davis Cup trophy would be decided between France’s Paul-Henri Mathieu and Mikhail Youzhny. From the start, Mathieu was the better player, winning the first set and quickly going up a break in the second.

Obrazek“I knew exactly what was problem with Mischa,” claims Andrei. “He had so many emotions inside of him and he could not play. I could see he had the wrong emotions. I knew what I must do.”

Andrei sent a message to the Captain Shamil Tarpischev for Mischa to take toilet break. That would be his opportunity to talk with his younger brother. When Youzhny returned to the court he was given a warning from the chair umpire for receiving coaching. Whatever Andrei said must have been very powerful, because Mikhail Youzhny instantly became a different beast. Youzhny clawed his way back to even the match and then seized the Davis Cup for Russia in the fifth set.

“So many people ask me and Mischa what I said to him,” says Andrei. “We never say. And I will not tell you what I said because it is between family only.”

“It was so tough feeling for me because father had just died,” Youzhny admitted. “On one moment I was very happy. And another I was wanting my father to see me play such an important match for Russia. For him to give us everything so we could play tennis and then not to see me play was really, really tough.”

“It was terrible,” recalls Sobkin. “Happiness, sadness. Happy to win, but sad his father could not see him. So many tears from everybody.”

It was his father, Mikhail Youzhny Sr., who decided that his sons should play tennis. And like many boys, little Mikhail followed in the footsteps of his older brother, Andrei.

“In summer we learn tennis,” says Andrei. “And in winter we learn figure-skating. Then one day when we get a little older, the coach speaks to father if we want to play tennis seriously. If we want to try professional, we must go to Spartak Club. Father said, ‘Yes, why not. Let us try.’”

It would be easier said than done. Every day they would make the long commute to the Spartak Club. It would take them over an hour each way, underground by metro and then two buses. And their mother, an economist, would take on two extra part-time jobs to help pay for it.

“At Spartak Club we have such a good tradition of players,” says Tatiana Naumko, “Little boys many times were standing behind fence watching Andrei (Chesnokov) practice. He was like hero to young boys. And little Mischa was there behind fence watching too.”

“Our parents had to find a way to get us a coach,” says Mikhail Youzhny. “It was not so easy. In the beginning me and Andrei would watch how coaches were working with students. Then we would make our own drills with a bag of old balls that we collected.”

Obrazek“Mischa and Andrei were practising together all the time without coach,” remembers Sobkin. “In the beginning, Mischa is all the time breaking racquets and crying. Not so many coaches want to work with boy with strong character like this. So, they would practise on one court for 15 minutes and then comes a member so they must leave court immediately and move to another court. Ten minutes maybe 20 minutes later comes another member and like this all day. There was something in Mischa’s eyes, a sparkle, maybe, I don’t know. Sometimes the eyes tells more than parents. Of course, I did not see Mischa is Top 10 player then. But I could see he had something special.”

It was in 1995 that Mikhail Youzhny, a 13-year-old ball boy, got his first taste of what being a Russian hero was like. In the deciding match of the Davis Cup tie of Russia versus Germany in Moscow at the Olympic Stadium, Chesnokov saved 10 match points against Michael Stich for a 14-12 victory.

“After the match there were so many people wanting to be near Chesnokov,” remembers Youzhny. “I went to locker room and so many people surround Andrei and he could not see that he forgot his tennis shoes on floor. I was so small that I could see them on the floor, and I took the shoes and put them in our apartment. They are still there today.”

When asked if any other Russian players had an influence on young Mikhail Youzhny, Boris Sobkin replied tongue-in-cheek. “Let us say like this, ‘Fortunately, other Russian players did not disturb him too much.’”

Maybe not other players, but there is no denying the influence of coach Boris Sobkin. It is true that Sobkin did not follow the ranks of the traditional tennis coach. Instead, he worked as a professor of mathematics at a very prestigious Soviet University. Still he was a good enough amateur player to be a sparring partner for Chesnokov.

“He is so smart,” says Andrei Youzhny. “Boris is always studying everything and how to make Mischa better. Even after all these years. Boris is like idol for me.”

“Boris’s mind does not have limit,” says Naumko. “He is constantly learning. And I believe that this is why Mischa is still improving at his age.”

And make no mistake, Mikhail Youzhny is still improving at 28 years old. He matched his best ever showing in a Grand Slam at this year’s US Open where he defeated John Isner, Tommy Robredo and Stanislas Wawrinka en route to the semi-finals, where he lost to eventual champion Rafael Nadal. He followed that performance by winning the Malaysian Open two weeks later for his seventh ATP World Tour title.

When asked about his good form this year, Youzhny was coy.

Obrazek“What means good year?” Youzhny asks furrowing his dark eyebrows. “Sometimes you start the year good, and then you finish bad. Or sometimes opposite. I think better to wait until season is over and then evaluate.”

“Youzhny is extremely solid mentally,” states Peter Lundgren, coach of Stanislas Wawrinka. “He has the ability to adapt to all types of conditions. And he can change the speed and direction of the ball very quickly. But his backhand slice is one of the best in the world. His slice has a lot of variety and he can neutralise an opponent’s offence quickly with it.”

While the slice keeps Youzhny alive, it is the topspin backhand down the line that deals the deathblow. Though his racquet hand is strong and calloused, when he strikes the ball it is as if he is wearing a velvet glove. However, if there is a chink in his armour it is his serve, or the lack of it. Youzhny serves up less aces than a poor luck poker player.

“That is something that must improve,” admits his brother. “I am confident that Boris will find a solution.”

“Actually, we have a lot of things to improve,” states Sobkin. “We are planning now. But, of course, I will not discuss this publicly.”

“Boris sees tennis the way few people do,” says ATP World Tour player and close friend, Sergiy Stakhovsky. “He is extremely intelligent and his practices with Mischa are very unique, a lot of angles. But there is more. You know he and Mischa have very interesting relationship. They both read so much. I mean Mischa is reading so many books all the time. When I first started to be around them, I was surprised at how high level conversation they are having. And Mischa is always joking with Boris, but then Boris is joking back to Mischa but higher level joke. And they keep going and on like this and in the beginning I was like, ‘Wow, what planet is this?’”

Youzhny’s bid for a place in the 2010 Barclays ATP World Tour Finals came to an end when a back injury forced him to retire against Ernest Gulbis at the BNP Paribas Masters. The long year was now over and it was time for Mikhail Youzhny to go home to his wife, Julia, and young son, Maxim.

Outside the Pullman Hotel in Paris it is cold and raining when Sobkin and Youzhny load their tennis bags into the tournament courtesy car for the ride to Charles de Gaulle Airport and flight back to Moscow. These days, Boris walks with a slight stoop in his back and Mikhail takes a little longer to recover after matches than he used to do. But one thing that has not changed after nearly two decades of working together is the sparkle in Youzhny’s eyes and Boris’s steady hand on Mikhail’s shoulder.

Jużny żegna się z Pucharem Davisa.

2-krotny zdobywa tego trofeum (2002, 2006) zapowiedział, że nie zagra już w reprezentacji swojego kraju w PD. Jako powody swojej decyzji Misza podał chęć koncentracji na rozgrywkach ATP Tour i spędzania większej ilości czasu z rodziną.

Mikhail Youzhny retires from Davis Cup tennis

MOSCOW (AP)—Russian tennis player Mikhail Youzhny says he is quitting Davis Cup tennis because he prefers to spend time between tournaments recovering and relaxing with his family.

The 11th-ranked Youzhny also tells Sport-Express that he has stepped down to make way for younger players.

Youzhny, who is 28, is Russia’s top-ranked player. Possibly his greatest Davis Cup moment came when he rallied from 2-0 down in the decisive fifth match against Paul-Henri Mathieu in the 2002 final against France to secure Russia its first title.

He also was on the team that won the title against Argentina in 2006.

Russia plays Sweden in the first round of the Davis Cup on March 4-6.

Cytuj:
Fifth seed Mikhail Youzhny improved to a 4-1 record against Frenchman Julien Benneteau, taking two hours and six minutes to clinch a 6-4, 3-6, 6-2 victory in second-round action.

Youzhny Graduates With PhDs in Philosophy

Obrazek
While studying for his degree,
Mikhail Youzhny reached a career-high
of World No. 8.


Former World No. 8 Mikhail Youzhny has graduated from the University of Moscow with a PhDs in Philosophy. In a ceremony held at the Russian State University of Physical Education, Sport, Youth and Tourism on 15th November, the Russian tennis player answered approximately 20 questions about his work before all 16 members of the scientific council approved his PhDs.

"I took my coach (of 17 years), Boris Sobkin, and my family and friends as well, and the guy who helped me with the degree," recalled Youzhny, speaking from Thailand, where he has trained every off-season since 2000. "There were some professors from the university there. I was a bit nervous because it was something new, it’s not like a tennis match I’m going to play, which I do every week. I was answering questions and reasoning, so of course it’s different. But actually, when I think about what I said, it’s my life, what I’m doing every day on court."

The 29-year-old Youzhny began studying for the degree in 2005, knowing that with limited free time as he competed on the ATP World Tour 11 months of the year, it would take him longer than the usual three-year period to complete it.

"I didn’t mind if it took 5, 6, 7, 8 years, when I had some free time I could do it slowly," explained the Muscovite, who reached a career-high of World No. 8 in the South African Airways ATP Rankings in the midst of his studies in January 2008. "I feel good because I took the time to do what I wanted to do, I finished it, and I’m happy with that.

"I didn’t work on the degree when I was at tournaments, but when I came back to Russia I would work on my degree and write about how I see situations: how I feel and explain how I feel about the attitude of tennis, the plusses and minuses, why you have to do certain things."

Youzhny’s work explores the philosophy and attitudes of tennis, and he hopes it will be of benefit to aspiring coaches and players.

"This is my life; I have played tennis on the ATP World Tour all my life," said Youzhny. "I wanted to explain to young players and give them some information about what I think about tennis. So it is mainly for young players and young coaches.

"I didn’t do the degree to help my tennis career on the court, but maybe it can help some coaches working with young players. I speak about it to some young guys I see and how I think they’re doing, but it is mainly for young coaches who want to be a good coach."

After completing his preparations in Thailand, where he is training with young players, Dr. of Philosophy Youzhny will begin his 2012 campaign at the Qatar ExxonMobil Open in Doha, before competing at the first Grand Slam of the year at the Australian Open in Melbourne.

Jużny doktorem psychologii

29-letni rosyjski tenisista Michaił Jużny został doktorem psychologii na Uniwersytecie Moskiewskim. Podczas obrony pracy zadano mu 20 pytań, zanim były numer osiem w rankingu ATP World Tour otrzymał dokument potwierdzający stopień naukowy.

Jużny przygotowywał się do tego od 2005 roku, choć nie było to łatwe, bowiem przez blisko 11 miesięcy w roku gra w turniejach. Jednak w środowisku znany był z tego, że niemal każdą wolną chwilę wykorzystywał na czytanie książek z zakresu psychologii sportowej.

– Gdyby nie tenis, to pewnie udałoby mi się wszystko przeprowadzić szybciej, ale i tak poszło mi całkiem sprawnie, pomimo oczywistych trudności. Starałem się zawsze odrabiać zaległości, kiedy tylko wracałem do Rosji z turniejów. Jestem z siebie dumny, bo udało mi się sfinalizować coś, na czym bardzo mi zależało. Jestem z tego powodu szczęśliwy – powiedział Jużny.

– Tenis jest moim życiem, a swoją pracą doktorską staram się przekazać młodym zawodnikom swoje doświadczenie zdobyte w Tourze, nie tylko dzięki samej grze, ale też przez odpowiedni trening mentalny i nieustanne wzmacnianie swojej psychiki. Mam nadzieję, że wniosę też sporo do wiedzy trenerów – dodał.

Pierwszy start w przyszłym sezonie Jużny planuje w pierwszym tygodniu stycznia w turnieju ATP Tour na twardych kortach w Dausze (z pulą nagród 1,024 mln dol.). Będzie to jego główny etap przygotowań do startu w wielkoszlemowym Australian Open (16-29 stycznia) w Melbourne.

Rosjanin ma w dorobku siedem zwycięstw singlowych w tym cyklu i dziesięć deblowych. W styczniu 2008 roku osiągnął najwyższą w karierze ósmą pozycję w rankingu tenisistów, a obecnie jest numerem 35. na świecie, na co wpływ miały kontuzje i nieco słabsza forma. Dotychczas zarobił na korcie 8 874 355 dolarów.

Myślałem, że Jużny preferuje rozwiązania siłowe, jeśli chodzi o problemy z psychiką na korcie. :D :D :D

Michałek bardzo długo czekał na tytuł, a jak już się doczekał to machnął od razu dwa. :D Misza wygrał też rywalizację deblową w Zagrzebiu. ;)

Rosjanin ma już 9 tytułów w grze podwójnej.

Youzhny Ends Title Drought; Wins Zagreb Double

Cytuj:
Third seed Mikhail Youzhny captured his eighth title on Sunday, dismissing first-time ATP World Tour finalist Lukas Lacko 6-2, 6-3 in the PBZ Zagreb Indoors final. He followed up his singles victory by partnering Marcos Baghdatis to the doubles crown to become the first double winner this season.

The Russian did not face a break point in the match, winning 75 per cent of his service points. He broke the 97th-ranked Lacko three times, and served out the match at love to end a 16-month title drought dating back to his Kuala Lumpur triumph in 2010. "It feels really good, as it was my best match of the tournament, and that’s why I won today," said Youzhny. "It’s tough to compare my level today with previous years, it’s impossible. But for sure today was my best tennis of the week."

With the win, Youzhny remained undefeated against the Slovakian, defeating the 24 year old for the fourth time. He is now 8-10 in title matches, with four of his final victories coming on indoor hard courts. "I don’t want to think about my ranking. If I keep playing well, my ranking will come," stated Youzhny. "I’m just enjoying my game at the moment, that’s it. It’s a nice atmosphere in Zagreb, I feel comfortable here and really enjoy this tournament."

Lacko was bidding to beat his fourth straight seeded opponent, having knocked off No. 2 seed Alex Bogomolov Jr., seventh seed Robin Haase and No. 6 seed and 2007 champion Marcos Baghdatis en route to the final. "I was down 1-2 in the first set. I had an easy forehand winner down the line, and I missed it," recalls Lacko. "It was a cruical moment as he broke me that game, and he started to play too good. He was reading me well, so I didn't have control in the [match]."

Added Lacko, "I wasn't nervous. I didn't play my best. He was just too good today. If I take my four matches before, I was the one applying pressure, attacking most of the shots. Today was the opposite. I was under pressure."

In the doubles final, Youzhny and Baghdatis rolled past wild cards Ivan Dodig and Mate Pavic 6-2, 6-2 in just 52 minutes. The Cypriot and Russian won 24 of their 26 first serve points, and broke the Croatians twice in each set to seal the victory.

Baghdatis takes home his first doubles trophy in his second title match, while Youzhny celebrates his ninth win in 12 finals. Both Dodig and Pavic were contesting their first doubles final. "It's been a pleasure to come back here to play this week," said Baghdatis. "I was last here in 2007 and it's been great to be back. Thanks to everyone for making it a great week, and Mischa for playing with me. Congrats to him on a great tournament."

Prior to Youzhny, the last player to win both the singles and doubles events at an ATP World Tour event was Andy Murray, who pulled off the feat at the Rakuten Japan Open Tennis Championships in 2011.
